Newton’s own version of Punt, Pass & Kick competition for boys and girls in grades 4-6 is Friday before the varsity football game at H.A. Lynn Stadium.

The competition begins at 5 p.m. on the east practice field located behind the visitor bleachers at the stadium. Registration forms were handed out at the Newton elementary schools and are available at Newton’s Culver’s and at the Newton Senior High School office.

Each participant gets two attempts at each skill — punting, passing and kicking. The participant in each age group with the highest combined scores will be recognized during halftime of the Newton-Ballard game Friday night.

The age groups are Grade 4 girls, Grade 4 boys, Grade 5 girls, Grade 5 boys, Grade 6 girls, Grade 6 boys.

This competition is sponsored by Culver’s and Newton YSF and is not affiliated with the NFL’s Punt, Pass & Kick Contest.
